May 29, 2014 Without a character to connect with it all amounts to nothing but a poor man's Braveheart, minus that film's vigorous battle sequences.Read in Source
We Got This Covered
June 02, 2014 Beautifully shot, well-acted, and respectful to a fault, Age of Uprising: The Legend of Michael Kohlhaas is often left inert by its weighty meditations.Read in Source
May 30, 2014 Medieval mumblecore. And social conflict as secondary to the scenery in this dramatic momentum-free travelogue, a treat solely for arty snobs and couch potato political dilettantes. Poverty porn as high art, and most memorable, a pregnant horse in labor.Read in Source
June 05, 2014 It can be quite powerful on the rare occasions when it allows raw emotion to make its way to the surface.Read in Source
December 17, 2013 Succeeds neither as a decent adaptation of the book nor as a rewarding movie in its own right ... Dullness prevails.Read in Source
May 27, 2014 This muted approach robs the film of sorely needed momentum, but offers a rare opportunity for contemplation, a trade-off that only occasionally satisfies.Read in Source

Los Angeles Times
May 29, 2014 It's a strong story of lonely, even futile righteousness, which makes the plodding execution by director Arnaud des Pallierès somewhat mystifying.Read in Source
May 30, 2014 Those seeking bloodletting and savagery will be disappointed... Let it be said that Age of Uprising will test the limits of moviegoers who are not prepared for the deliberate way this revenge tale is handled.Read in Source
June 04, 2014 Des Pallières also hears his historical era: the richly detailed sound design, of jostles and clanks and wind, compensates partially for the film's often deliberate pace.Read in Source
